Research Students' Summer Conference

Our Research Students Summer Conference (RSSC) is an annual event for all research students.

RSSC 2021 edition will be a virtual conference to showcase the research being carried out by research students across the Faculties and our Collaborative Partner Institutions. It's an opportunity to share ideas, create fruitful collaborations and celebrate research.

RSSC 2021 edition | Research in a Changing World | 23 June 2021

The theme of this year’s conference is ‘Research in a Changing World’. We invite students from any discipline and at any stage of research to submit abstracts which consider this theme and how it interacts with your research area. Prizes will be awarded for the best presentations!

This year will see higher international participation and attendance as we make the most out of our newfound skills of connecting virtually across the world.

Researchers of today are required to adapt and be versatile to any challenges they face and you'll have the chance to practice and enhance your skills of presenting to a virtual audience, submitting a digital poster and networking in an online world.

This is a unique challenge and opportunity; now is your time to grasp it!

For more information on this year's theme, the committee and what to expect during this online conference, please visit our Summer Conference website.
